New staff member Jason Traverse has long CAS history

Jason Traverse joined the staff supporting CAS, along with Philosophy, Applied Linguistics, and related centers/institutes.

What some may not have known was Jason's history as both a CAS major and a winner of the CAS/NYT public speaking contest. Thanks to the archives, we have unearthed that winning speech, and if you want to curse the high cost of bad drivers to society, or if you just want to see Jason shine, watch the full video here:

Mark Kohler unearthed this and shared it with Jason, who says that this contest "was the event that actually made me switch majors and become a CAS major instead. So, this is the very thing that began my CAS journey almost a decade ago, which has lead me to where I am now."
